A Quiet Week at all the Sheds

There’s been a lot of “back office” work going on over Christmas break Finance update, a further bid for youth projects prepared and submitted, registering of the 3 Whitby Area Sheds with Charity Commission, 4 new postcards including new Quieter Shed etc.

The Sheds themselves have been closed for 10 days or so but on Thursday Staithes was active with making a sloping table on which to mount the scroll saw. A new Whitby member, Sean, joined us and put his ten pence in on it’s construction.

It was finished and there should be photos on Monday of the scroll saw working. We did this just in time because Shedder Karen met “Snapper” the following day and he asked whether a table had been been made. He should be coming on Monday to eye it up. The saw mounted on the board can be lifted off what you see above, so it can be moved between rooms at Staithes Shed.

Graham made a call on Shedder Lance to catch up with life and to discuss dust extraction approaches. It was a very worthwhile 90 minutes which also yielded the church noticeboard below. In oak and no rot. For good (though complicated reasons) Lance had made a duplicate replacement and the original had been kicking around in Lance’s workshop and in his way. A fab job for the Sheds to refurbish and recycle for another place.

Lance is not the only talented Shedder. Sheds host talents that are not only craft skill based. They may well be talents of discernment and care. All tools in our toolbox of Shedders.
